Rich archival harvest of perceptive insights

It is unfortunate that the spiritual insights which could be obtained from the rich archival material that was there at the disposal of the author of a recent biography of Sri Aurobindo are not available in his work. Research with the help of these documents could be rewarding. RYD

As a precaution against the misuse of the word “spiritual” perhaps it would be better to say “discursive insights concerning matters spiritual” instead of “spiritual insights” here. I recall having objected once in a letter to Jayantilal Parekh to an analogous incongruity in the title “Essays Divine and Human.” [TNM]

Thanks. Perhaps the best is "perceptive insights"... RYD Reply Mirror of Tomorrow
